. when i came into office the governor and general assembly without my support passed a large income tax increase here in the january of twe ven. the sad thing we're now two years into the income tax increase and they raised money and not respond to the problem. i think this year, this spring session of the general assembly it will finally come home to reality. not only downgrades, moody's, fitch and standard have eight watches, warnings or downgrades since the income tax increase has gone into effect. what comes next the fiscal year fourth four, natural revenue growth from illinois coming from sales tax, gaming without tax increases is $600 million. but the reality of the amount of increased payments into the public pension systems is $945 million. i think they will have to deal with this $345 million spread. reality is --. melissa: dan, i applaud your optimism you think this will finally be the come to jesus moment where they realize there is huge problem but i don't know that is necessarily the case because we see california going down the same road. seems like politicians almost neve

"the inauguration was not only grayer, he sounded less like a man ready for lofty flights and more ready for ground battles." and then here is "the washington post," this morning. there had lyme, "we must act." -- there had line, "we must act -- their headline, "we must act."

of other californians about to do it as well? is your sounds like it, new california state tax hikes sending some residents fleeing california. so where will they go? nevada tax accountant george ashley says he knows. nice to see you, george. >> hello, greta, thank you for having me. >> greta: what's the story? people who live on the border of nevada and california are making the quick move to nevada? >> well, that's the people living on the border, but people from all sorts of places in california who want to avoid the california tax, a lot of them are thinking about packing up and moving and a lot of them are doing it. >> greta: what would be the reason, folks from deeper into the state away from nevada, but if you live on the border of california, unless you're really wedded to your house, why not move the mile into nevada and save yourself 13.3%? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> when does it make sense? suppose i have a business in california and i'm thinking of selling my business, should i move to inform nenevada before it or stuck paying the taxes no matter what. >> depends on t
-- >> maximum? >> they should pay their fair share. >> sean: give me a fair share number. >> i like a flat tax. >> sean: between state, local, federal and isn't it sad people are thinking of moving states? and some people might leave the country, that's sad. >> only people with options can do that and we're losing track of that. >> sean: when those people leave, guess who is going to pay? the people who are left. >> yeah, and the states are being dug into the ground with all of these. >> sean: and we've got to run, but we expect momentarily that vice-president biden will be addressing the troops on this inauguration night. congratulations to the president, first lady for ing, that's all the time at we have left. greta is next to go "on the record" and we'll see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight, it's blistering, it isn't so much what was said, but who said it. is the cbs news political director and telling president obama to pulverize and destroy republicans. but tonight, scott walker is here and how are he and other governors planning for president obama's second term. governor walker in
. >> greta: every time we hit one of the mile posts, whether it's sequestration or debt ceiling, taxes going up, whatever it is, what happens is the solution is just to extend is somehow and create another hurdle in a certain period of time and when we get to that point we do it again. i mean. >> that's not the best way to do it. >> greta: is there ever going to be a finality to this. >> one way or the other because there will come a point where the debt will deal with us if we don't deal with it. no doubt it has to be dealt with, we would hope we would deal with it it before that point of crisis before we become europe or one of the places that scramble to deal with it that should been dealt with a long time. the president of the united states gave his inaugural address on monday and barely mentioned the national debt and the fundamental argument only way for the middle class and create prosperity in america is for the government to have more control over our economy, more taxes, more regulations, more spending. there's a fundamental difference between the president's view of our future and
's capitol. >> talk a little bit about the potential for more tax hikes. with house republicans talking about that and a leading democrat coming out saying that congress needs more money in order to reach the numbers they have to get to. he says there is really no way around that except higher taxes. here is charles schumer. >> $1.7 trillion in cuts. we've done $600 billion in revenues. you will need more revenues as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. we're going to do a budget this year and it will have revenues in it and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. martha: promise, promises right? they will do a budget this year. we haven't seen one in how long? stuart varney the anchor of "varney & company". how many years has it been now? >> i believe it is 3 1/2 years. we go through the tax debate. we thought we got higher taxes on the rich and it was over, not so. senator schumer and fellow democrats are proposing yet higher taxes on the rich, more taxes on oil and gas companies and taxes on profits that american corporations makeover seas. so that is three big areas
're worried about tax reform. jobs and unemployment. this is catapulted to the front of the line. why now do you think? >> well, big items like this. and this is a big one. need to be done early in a session. even with an issue like this that favors republicans, people get skittish so, i think, if you're going to move something this big, you've got to start early. >> can i -- can i barely call this? as i really want to because i think you're in the right direction. can i say that if done properly and orderly way, this is pro-growth, this is pro-growth, those immigrants come here to work and they'll help us. could it be sold as a pro-growth measure? >> you bet, you bet it can. just on the regular immigration reform that people think about. that's pro-growth, but what you mentioned, few people realize is part of this. on the high-tech side, we have american companies that are having a whale of a time finding enough americans to fill positions in the so-called stem fields. and this would deal with that issue and it would allow individuals who are educated in our universities receiving masters a

be making a bigger case about taxes, spending, shoot for the mountains and not get dragged down on what he says is clearly democrats and the president's turf. >> we have to focus, steve, i believe republicans -- i've said it time and time again -- on taxes. on cutting spending. on saving entitlements. on saving america from this crushing national debt. it grew $6 trillion under barack obama over the past term. and try to avoid some of these other issues. but i hear bobby jindal's new federalism on crack talking about cutting federal employees by three-quarters, et cetera, et cetera. that ain't going to happen. with the changing demographics and where america is and where it's going over the next 20 every 30 years. >> that's the issue. if you separate it, i think the first part not being the stupid party anymore is sort of a no-brainer. why would you go around insulting important interest groups. >> women. >> yeah, the 47%, all that stuff. but then you get to his policy proposals, and i don't think he's in the mainstream of this country when you talk about 25% of the government buildings, c
with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure this reservoir of inexpensive gas does not undercut the addition of renewables to our energy portfolio. solar, wind, geothermal. dership on these technologies for a balanced energy portfolio and ultimately to reduce our carbon footprint. at each step, we should be looking to enhance energy conservation, because the cheapest kilowatt hour is one that you don't have to generate. we should have a 10-year glide

've raised taxes by $200 billion a year. the reason that u.s. stocks are up 5% after this horrible thing we've done to our selves that under norm circumstances would cause a recession is because we're in a global economy and every other major country in the world is doing the right thing while we're doing the wrong thing. that's propping us up. we're fine, we'll have a great year. these other countries doing things right, that aren't kicking the can down the road, they're going to have fabulous years. that's where you want to put your money, my friend. >> i was reporting in 2007 when we hit dow 14,000 and everyone got slammed on that. there's a hesitance at these levels. what's not getting talked about enough is the impact on consumer sentiment. if you go to any coffee shop, grocery store, anywhere in this country, people are looking at their 401(k), they feel better and i think that will translate into positive consumer spending, which filters into the whole economy. >> the retail investors is getting involved. the money flows are ramping up tremendously on the retail side. i would disagre

to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing us very quickly. and party leaders are finally understanding that. you know, roger els, i brought up richard haass, roger els before. roger els saw this coming well before the 2012 election. he had realized what had gone wrong. not only at his network but also in the conservative movement of the republican party. that's why he was running out and talking to chris christie saying, get in this race. you can save this party
